Amelia Island: The National Historic Vehicle Register

The 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will be the stage for the announcement of the next vehicle added to the National Historic Vehicle Register. Watch for details in the coming weeks and, in the meantime, check out this video featuring the six vehicles currently on the National Historic Vehicle Register, as well as further information on the Register itself. History buffs and car guys and gals alike, take note!

The National Historic Vehicle Register is the first of its kind to carefully and accurately document America’s most historically significant automobiles, motorcycles, trucks and commercial vehicles. In March 2013, the HVA entered into a collaboration with the U.S. Department of the Interior to explore how vehicles important in American and automotive history could be effectively documented and recognized. This project has helped create a permanent archive of significant historic automobiles within the Library of Congress.

Further additions to the Register will be announced in the coming months, with many of the vehicles showcased at specific events. Check out our EventsFacebook and National Historic Vehicle Register pages for more information.
